How in the hell do you produce this powerful an issue with just seven words of dialogue!!!! Incredible!

We bear witness to the aftermath of the crucifixion of Christ and the apparent birth of vampires all told with only a few sprinkled bible quotes for the story. I was genuinely gripped by this issue from start to finish, about halfway I was thinking that it was impossible to ha e almost no dialogue for an entire issue but honestly, it doesn’t need it the artwork is just beautiful all the feelings the intensity and the gravity of the situation pours off the pages so much that no matter your religious persuasion you can’t help but feel the reverence for the story. I have loved every issue of Redneck but this is right up there with one of the most moving.

I know of a few vampire origin tales in popular culture and religion, one film had it being Judas Iscariot who was cursed to roam the earth for his sins, I believe one take is that Adams first wife Lilith is the original vampire (which I hope this alludes to) but this is a fresh take for me and I have to say I love it! As always a must-read
